In the world of athletic training, Robert Taylor, Jr.’s resume speaks for itself. In addition to stints as the head strength and conditioning coach for two NCAA Division I programs, his expertise also landed him gigs with professional baseball, football, and basketball franchises. Now, along with the other experienced coaches at SMARTER Team Training, Robert shepherds high school athletes toward their full potential at training camps and clinics. Whether they’re honing position-specific skills for football, basketball, field hockey, soccer, baseball, softball, volleyball, or other sports, or increasing overall athleticism during the school’s signature Speed, Agility, and Conditioning Camp, students always find a challenging itinerary designed to bring skills to a more advanced level. There's even a college prep training program, which gets high school players ready for the increased intensity at the college level.

Competition plays a peripheral role at Let’s Move Sportz. Coaches of the coed flag-football league, which welcomes kids aged 5–12, emphasize sportsmanship and camaraderie instead.

Capstone Tutor's employees are truly a hand-selected group. Before tutors are sent out on the job, they must pass a rigorous qualification process, from degree confirmation and background checks to personal- and professional-reference interviews. And that’s just the base testing. After achieving the Capstone seal of approval, tutors are then paired with a student whose academic needs match their expertise, unlike other tutoring companies that pair students and tutors based on their hair color. Through this intense process Capstone is able to ensure that students receive instruction from a professional with a proven track record.
